(Bloomberg) — BP Plc, which has paid more than $28 billion for the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill, seeks to get $750 million of that back by convincing a Texas court that a missing comma allows the energy company access to Transocean Ltd.’s insurance policies on the doomed Deepwater Horizon rig.

BP filed claims with Transocean’s carriers in 2010, seeking to tap a $50 million primary policy issued by Ranger Insurance and $700 million in excess coverage from Lloyd’s of London and other underwriters. The carriers asked the court overseeing the spill litigation to rule that BP wasn’t entitled to unlimited access to Transocean’s insurance.
